Pallister budget bad for Manitobans

No benefit for low-income families, increased taxes for seniors

Yesterday’s budget did not provide necessary supports to families, seniors, students, women, and low-income Manitobans, Finance Critic James Allum said today.

“We are deeply disappointed that this government is failing to be straight with Manitobans,” said Allum. “What is clear, however, is that the Premier and his Finance Minister are catering to stockbrokers and CEOs, not Manitoba families. And their secret private-sector audit sets the stage to justify job cuts.”
